Theta State

About Theta State

San Diego, CA

Never afraid to explore new territory, Theta State creates dark ambient experimental breakbeats - a fusion of hip hop, funk, drum and bass, breaks, industrial, ambient, and experimental electronic. Theta State’s extended mixes are known to move the listener through a complete range of emotions, often in the most unexpected ways. Utilizing both software and custom-made instruments, Theta State began recording in 2007 with plans to self-release a finished album under Subversive Culture Records. A live Theta State experience is also in the works.

Contemplation, creativity, and meditation produce electrical waves in the brain causing what is known as Theta State. Pursuing the musical embodiment of this phenomenon, Craig Maslowski has made music running the gamut from mellow ambient pieces to furious breaks. Picking up his first instrument in 1991, he studied music theory and metal guitar under Ray Holroyd of 12 Ton Method and Needleye fame. In 2000, he entered the realm of free form electronic music with projects such as lysdexic, Prayer Chair, and The Narcoleptic Anarchists. He was also a member of the now-defunct Infinite Sector, a collective of experimental electronic musicians from around the world.

Subversive Culture Records is slated to release the first Theta State EP in 2008/2009 with plans to sign more bands in the future. For previews of the album and other Theta State news including the debut single “Lisa’s Xmas Mix 2007,” check out Theta State's official site.
